Moods ‘Lost Translation’
Dutch producer MOODS is currently gearing up for the release of his debut LP, after the success of his debut EP, Sincere. In the meantime, however, he has first decided to release a new track to test the waters.
Lost Translation, with it’s on trend blending of hip hop beats and analogue electronica, is warm and familiar, and is setting the bar high for what 2015 still holds for him!
Sweeping synths and fresh, crisp hip hop beats are laid down in Lost Translation, with MOODS carefully layering the track with more and more as it goes along. The more he adds, the deeper the track gets yet still maintains a chilled and laid back vibe. Following on from his mellow natured tracks on Sincere, MOODS does chill-wave very well indeed.
Vocal samples and glitchy synths fill in the track, with even a bit of saxophone getting involved. MOODS shows a restrained approach as he controls the many elements that are going on, then suddenly takes it all away leaving just the synth licks and a faint saxophone one last time.
MOODS‘ Sincere EP was released on the newly founded Boogie Angst Records, founded by Dutch duo KRAAK & SMAAK. Priding themselves on finding the best new music, it’s safe to say MOODS‘ forthcoming LP is in more than capable hands, and will be an interesting one to watch unfold!
